As the mom of an allergy kid, I get a little obsessive about the kinds of prepackaged foods I allow in my house. Understandably (and thankfully!) the teachers at Josh’s school are the same way. If it isn’t nut-free, it doesn’t go in the classroom and it doesn’t go near Josh’s mouth. It only takes one “Mom, my tongue feels funny…” to make me into an obsessive label checker. And it never fails to surprise me some of the sneaky places nuts can hide. You really do have to be at the top of your game when it comes to keeping your allergy kids safe.
I’m thrilled to be partnering with Snyder’s of Hanover (one of our favorite snack brands!) on this sponsored post to let you know that Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels are now peanut-free! Woo hoo!! This means Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels are now safe for kids with a peanut allergy and schools with peanut-free requirements since they are made in a peanut free facility.
Part of the reason we are so psyched about this news is because of how much we love pretzels here. They make the perfect lunchbox companion to a sandwich or soup. They are also a great snack for mid-morning break or after school.
We love using them for other things too – like substituting them for breadcrumbs on our favorite baked chicken breasts or nuggets. Here is our favorite easy to make recipe!
